I actually was using that "Be A Good American - Don't Try To Think" one as my wallpaper for a few weeks.

I wouldn't exaclty clasisfy the conservatives on this board as that type of individual, especially considering the number of policies I disagree with the administration on.

I find this comment hilarious. ESPECIALLY since must Republicans I have ever met held widely varying opinions on different matters, and could openly debate.

Virtually ever Democrat I have met had little to no idea why they believed what they did, in fact, they believed what they were TOLD to believe by Democrats in power and the all-too liberal media, and absolutly refused to have any sort of open debate or free exchange of ideas. Maybe they were the ones with an aversion to thinking?

Damn it- the think I hate about all of those "posters" is that nothing of that nature ever happened. Republicans NEVER assualted the differeing opinion the Democrats had- it was the immature tamtrums they were throwing that drew the scorn. Democrats are so quick to point out that "Republicans don't want them to speak their minds!" but everytime a Republican has a differing idea, it is blasted as racist or otherwise hateful in some way (usually wrongly), and no even attempt at discorse is made by the left.

Sad really- I have said it before- the Democratic Party of today is acting like a spoiled 2 year old that lost its favorite toy after the elections of 2000 and 2002. I just hope the majority of the left comes to their senses soon, and rejoins the rest of mature society. Democrats may have different ideas, but it is the effective exchange of ideas and compromise in the federal government between the two that makes things work. Just look how well things were going under Reagan.

Okay, that's just absolutely ludicrous. Every single time that anyone came out to oppose the idea of going to war in Iraq the news coverage would then throw someone on the screen who would call them "unpatriotic" or "unamerican" or something of that ilk. And I love the idea that somehow this opposition is "immature tantrums" but throughout the late 90's anytime things happened to oppose Clinton were never called that by people.

If you disagree with those posters, cool. Hell, there's a couple on there I thought were distasteful. If you are happy supporting the Republican party, great. I think you support the wrong side, but c'est la vie. But considering you own all of Congress, the White House, the Supreme Court, a majority of State Houses, and the major corporations which own most of the media, you really need to try and not feel so darn persecuted. Hell, even here on this board you have a majority. So until people are throwing shit at you and calling you "saddam lover" because you disagree with the president's actions try and enjoy the fact that you RUN THIS DAMN COUNTRY RIGHT NOW!

While I partly agree with the sentiment behind the posters did they really need to tell the joke 45 freaking times to get it over?! Talk about overkill.

The Republicans have achieved power by succesfully portraying themselves as the persecuted masses against the "liberal elite." Considering they're now down to bitching about a Columbia University Professor and the New York Times, I don't know long they're going to be able to keep up this little tactic.

You guys better get ahead of the curve now, becuase complaining about the "liberal elite" is getting even more ridiculous than it was ten years ago.

Considering the new info that's come out about McCarthy, this is certainly an interesting time to bring this up. Republicans have never assaulted diversity and free speach?

So the fact that Republicans have the majority excuse the Democrats for their childish behavior? I see... good to know for the future...

The fact is that it is not as simple as "you are in the majority, so you run the country." Just ask those held-up judicial nominees.

Democrats are being called Saddam-lovers not because they opposed the war, but how and why they did. The blatant hypocricy in supporting action in Bosnia, and Clinton's other "war," while opposing this one due to the current C&C contributed a great deal to that.

I just expect positive, productive action from the Democrats, that is all, even if they are in opposition to the majority. Even if you disagree with Bush, there can be no denying that he is WORKING towards something. The Democrats are just dragging their feet and pouting. There is a huge difference in effective use of a minority position, and BLOCKING everything that the majority is trying to get done on the basis of their party.

Pool Boy is right, it's a shame when judicial nominees are held up at the whim of a process that places politics before ability. Just ask all the vacancies Clinton was trying to fill but couldn't get through Jesse Helms.

Speaking as a Democrat, I was against the war in Bosnia as well, even moreso than this one. The difference with this one was the scale, and the near unanimity of the First World in standing against us on this one. If Clinton had been sending the kind of military strength that went to Iraq into Bosnia you would have seen street protests against that war too. But the scope of the action determined the scope of the opposition to some degree.

And no, I DON'T want "positive productive" action from the Democrats if what that turns out to be is simply rubber stamping the Bush agenda. Just as I would have been highly confused if in 1994 the GOP had suddenly passed Clinton's health care plan simply so that they could be "productive". The job of opposition is to oppose things. Sometimes you are rewarded by the populace with power the next time around (like the GOP in 94), sometimes your opposition seems to bite you in the ass (like the Dems in 2002). But either way, I would rather have gridlock on a lot of things than "compromises" which are to me and a LOT of other folks in the country even worse than doing nothing.

So? If he's working towards something that's a genuinely bad idea, that doesn't make it good.

Man, and I thought I was a champion at generalizing. If you don't think some Repubs are told what to think, go spend a day with a Rush Limbaugh fan. Or a 700 Club watcher. Then we'll talk.

Oh, I'm sure some of them will claim not to be "political." And they probably don't care. They probably don't question much. But at the end of the day, they're pulling that "R" handle, because it's the right thing to do, the patriotic thing to do.


Sad really- I have said it before- the Democratic Party of today is acting like a spoiled 2 year old that lost its
favorite toy after the elections of 2000 and 2002.


Absolutely, they're acting like whiny little bitches. Kinda like the Repubs after '92.


Democrats may have different ideas, but it is the effective exchange of ideas and compromise in the federal government between the two that makes things work. Just look how well things were going under Reagan.

And I find THIS little nugget hilarious. But this is just where you and I disagree, PB. I tend to look at the 80s as a giant black hole of suck.
